Park and Professorville, or how Palo Alto was created.
Wellsbury Way in Palo Alto owes its name to a wedding in England
in the early 20th century. In 1904 James P. Blackman and Harriet
Wellsbury were married in Surrey, south of London. Immigrating to
the United States in 1910, they lived in Carmel Valley, then San
Francisco, where Mr. Blackman was co-owner of a beauty salon on
Geary Street. In 1948 the Blackmans settled in Palo Alto, bought
property that had been part of the Clark Ranch south of today's
Oregon Expressway, and subdivided it for 16 homes. Mr. Blackman
named Wellsbury Way after Mrs. Blackman's maiden name. They lived
the rest of their lives at number 685.

. On Saturday, July 22, 1916, as
Preparedness Day parade units assembled south of San
Franciscos Market Street, a terrorist bomb exploded, killing
ten people and wounding forty. San Francisco was outraged. Instead
of searching for the perpetrators, however, the district attorney
used the bombing as an excuse to arrest, try and convict two obscure
labor figures without evidence. What became known as the American
Dreyfus Case led to an international outcry, finally resulting
in one defendants pardon and the others parolebut
only after both men had been imprisoned for twenty-three years.
